We’ve had a wonderful time putting these issues together.
We’ve been educated and initiated into the wonderful world of
puppets! Steve Overton of the Olde World Puppet Theatre, added new
meaning to the word “puppet” for me. Watching him design and
carefully build Carmen, then bring her to vibrant life before my eyes
with his masterful manipulation of her strings, was enthralling!
You might be asking, Why would
Steve design a puppet for the
Cloth Doll Magazine? I think the
answer lies in his generous nature
and desire to share the magic. He
states, "The creative spirit only
needs a gentle nudge to allow it to
soar. Never grow so old that you
forget how to dream."
So while soaring with this
renaissance man in his studio, I
wondered what he thought was
the difference between a doll and
a marionette. He replied, "Really
it's three things. A marionette is
moved with strings, a doll is
manipulated with hands. The
construction of the jointing is
different..." He paused for a
moment and smiled, "I guess the
main difference is that a puppet is
a doll that works for a living".
We hope you enjoy this
The Cloth Doll magazine is no
longer being published and back
issues are no longer available
